This lesson looks at the latest Trinity Rock & Pop 2018 course curicullum.
After 5 years Trinity have released a brand new course curicullim and as a teacher I wanted to to discuss the new songs that have been added to each grade.
First of I have to say that I am very happy with the new selection of songs available for students to learn and play. In the previous course the songs where somewhat cheesy on the lower grades. I know that beginners can only play certain easy chords but this is a Rock & Pop course so I hardly think that the song from the Jungle book fits into to this genre. Now the initial grade has these songs
T.REX – 20th Century Boy, Dave Stewart – Lily Was Here, Traffic – Hole in my shoe, Foals – Mountain at my gate, REM – Orange Crush, Soul Asylum – Runaway Train, Nirvana – Where did you sleep last night, Chris Isaak – Wicked game.
That is a 100% improvement of the previous Initial grade list.
So what i have decided to do is look at some of the songs from the new 2018 course book and show some quick lessons on how to play certain parts of the songs featured.
In this lesson I look at Alive – Pearl Jam from the Guitar Grade book 5.
